John 14:20 In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.
Phil. 1:19 For I know that for me this will turn out to salvation through your petition and the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
I really enjoyed this week that the most crucial part of our being is our human spirit; created by God to contact Him and receive Him. As the Spirit, He entered into us when we first believed into Him and regenerated our deadened spirit (due to the fall). This regenerating Spirit remained in our regenerated spirit and is now one spirit with us.
It is not enough to just know that we've been forgiven and saved from eternal perdition or to be holy, victorious and overcome sin. God's goal is that we experience full salvation by allowing Christ as the life-giving Spirit to fill us and spread into our entire being (especially in our soul - our mind, emotion, and will) so that God would be expressed through us in our everyday decisions and actions.
Everything that God is, is in this all-inclusive Spirit (which is why Philippians speaks of the bountiful supply of the Spirit). May we be ones who live in our spirit and pay attention to our spirit where the Lord dwells.
